Paris: La Buvette Wine Bar

Camille Fourmont transformed this little vintage dairy shop on a sleepy street into a cult wine bar-shop that draws industry folk from all over the world who meet here for delicious tapas plates & bottles. 

Insider Tip:

Follow La Buvette on Instagram for the fun winemaker tastings and popup events with other chefs... the line for Mission Chinese's Danny Bowien was something you had to see to believe.

What to Order:

There isn't a kitchen but you can choose from the tapas listed on the wall mirror for quality charcuterie/paté and terrines (from our friend Rodolph Paquin, the King of Terrines), cheeses like creamy dreamy Burrata, oysters (when in season), homemade pickles, mackerel filets in tangy oil, country bread, and those ADDICTIVE white beans* with lemon zest & chive flowers.

*Do yourself a favour and order a portion of white beans for each person. That first plate will be gone in seconds.

Getting In:

No reservations, walk-ins only. This is a shoe box-sized bar where everyone knows each other - quarters are tight but locals are happy to squeeze in a corner or even just stand up so they can visit. I mean, who needs a chair when the wine bar's philosophy is: "A meal without wine is called breakfast"?

What to know before you go:

No reservations, walk-in only.

Grab a chair or stand at the bar to share simple but nibbles and sample
Camille’s focused selection of small production wines by the glass, bottle or magnum. Since it is a bottle shop, you can even take what you enjoy drinking home with you.

Please, CHECK. THE. ADDRESS. This is La Buvette in the 11th, not Buvette in the 9th.
